Asked for non smoking. Tried to give me room upstairs with stairs. I'm 65 and disabled, changed to down stairs for me. The room reeked of a smoker. Could not use the shower as it had a high tub and shower. Couldn't step over tub to get into shower

No coffee pot in room. No hair dryer. Telephone did not work. No markings on AC/heater, so difficult to adjust temperature. Coffee not yet made at 7:10AM, office still closed.

Non smoking room means little here; the patrons smoke outside their rooms and then bring there smoke inside the rooms; the smell of smoke inside my room was bad; hard to close front door unless you slam it; you can hear everything outside; wifi consistently drops; can't understand the lobby personnel; the room was remodeled recently with new paint and/or...

The desk clerk was a bit out of it. He tried to argue with me about a letter he said was sent and deposit. I did not mind but I worry about them. It was also lumped together now I have it back. It was OK. There were bums around and noise outside.

“Ask to see the room first, before you pay! We booked through Travelocity, so paid upfront, otherwise, I would not have stayed here. The girl at the front desk is really nice. That was about it. The location is nice, but wouldn't pay more than $29 for a room like this.”

“For the same price, if there are rooms available, I would recommend a few exits down and stay at the Days Inn on Mollison (where I've stayed several times in the past) in an actual non smoking room, with a pool, indoor hot tub and a friendly staff. Hope this review is helpful! : )”
